I knew it would happen eventually, and now it has. The interrogation has been turned, and now I have become the victim of my own making. So today, my friend Sean Sperte — who works in Seattle on an app product where people play tag throughout the universe — asks me the dumb questions and I provide the letter crimes with my mouth words. I (apparently) speak 2 languages, besides my version of English, I also speak sarcasm and fart. I am also a entermanure for a company that makes clown apps for kids.
When I’m not busy using potty words and asking ridiculous questions to famous(ish) creative people, you can find me doing this podcast in a closet or a parking lot and shamelessly begging people to rate and review this podcast on iTunes and vote for it as the Best New Podcast on the Net Awards. In real life, I make monsters and fart jokes.

Well there you are! I’ve been looking all over for you. It’s time for another excuse about time and lateness and words, but it doesn’t matter because we have a new episode with international gentleman Dan Rubin. You might know Dan from his coast to coast to coast Instagramming career — where he takes photos of architects and their cats, or from his burgeoning solo-jazz, musical parody career — where takes popular tunes and turns them into songs about design, photography and rounded corners.
When Dan isn’t accumulating more Instagram fans than Justin Bieber has run-ins with the law, he can be found in waiting at an airport on his way to a speaking engagement (aka running from the FBI), or on Google searching for phrases like “Cat Carrot”, “Rhino Kumquat” and “Armadillo Cabbage”.

Welcome back. I guess. I hope all of you had a wonderful holiday break (if you got one, I can’t assume that you did) and that it was filled with awkward family moments, gifts you can’t return and shirts that don’t fit. Anyway, today’s guest is design-legend, multi-dimensional soothsayer, time-traveler and all around tall handy-man Kurt Braunohler.
When Kurt isn’t getting paid in gift cards and making designs inspired by fecal mistakes, you might find him rummaging the shorelines of California researching whale blowholes, or hauling oil and brown things into New Jersey. Kurt also has an inspirational podcast called “The K-ohle” as well as an album that might be about design, called album thing called “How Do I Land?”.
